What can I say.
It seems crazy to think of posting how my small beds of vegetables did in the storms when every county in southern Wisconsin is declaring a state of emergency, dams are failing, entire lakes are washing away and emptying into nothing , houses are floating down the river, local farmers have once again been hit, and every single county has so many roads washed out or impassible it is mind-boggling. (Yes, an entire lake is GONE. Really.) Very close to home, a farm we drive past several times a week which is just a few miles down the road has flooded - the boys always loved seeing all of the animals. Sad.
We are fine and dry here. I hope you all are too.
So for a ray of light, I give you Dover. That is one super trooper Dove. While winds were blowing at 40-50+mph, the gazebo was literally lifting up into the air (we had to go out and weigh it down even more with a full sandbox, metal table, and several chains), the rain was coming in sideways, and hail was pelting so hard it tore a hole in the fabric, that Dove sat there on those eggs. My boys were so proud (and worried!).
And after a few days of chatting to Dove, A can now do a perfect dove call. Whoo-Oooh, hooo, hoooooo, hooooo. Absolutely perfectly. One awesome kid.
We have lots of garden updates and dad crafts coming this week. After we dry off.
